A Child of the ’80’s

So, I went with my friend Vickey to see Rock of Ages, and while there were mixed reviews from various friends of mine, I have to say that I laughed quite a bit through it. Man, did it remind me of growing up in the 80’s! Plus, corny as it may be, I love musicals. Across the Universe is still my favorite, but I really enjoyed this one too.

The main female character was from Tulsa, Oklahoma..where I live now, and I must say that she did us proud. 🙂 The main male character looked like he was related to Matthew McConaughey…Vickey couldn’t see the resemblance, but as a devout Matthew McConaughey fan, I’m sure I’m right, and she was just not trying hard enough.

My favorite thing about the movie though, was simply the music. Say whatever you want, but there was something magical about music back in the ’80’s, even if it isn’t cool to admit it these days. What wasn’t cool about the ’80’s, though, was how we dressed. Seriously, what were we thinking?? Thank God I was too poor to afford half of the weirdo stuff people were wearing back then….But, I did have the enormous hair…  On rainy days, I still do… 🙂

All in all, I’ve had the best couple of days I’ve had in months, and I am enjoying the peace I’ve been feeling lately. I started my book, and it is actually coming a long smoothly. I plan to get back into my writing schedule again tomorrow. I’ve missed all of you!

  1. I was intrigued by the clips I saw of this movie too! Glad that you enjoyed it and have had some peace. Can’t beat that! God bless you as you write Bird! You have a gift and are a gift!


    • I appreciate the link, but I’m not in a financial position to pay for stuff like this. I’ve paid for memberships before that only ended up costing me money, not making any. Thanks anyways.



  2. I’m proud to say I’m a child of the 80’s. I love hair bands (Motley Crue was and is my fav). I wouldn’t mind seeing this movie but I’m def going to wait until it comes out on DVD and pay a $1 to rent it. I know if Tom Cruise wasn’t in it I’d have gone to see it on opening day, but I just can’t stand him.

    I’m glad your having better days and I hope your writing just continues to go smoothly. 🙂
